Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Gurjanova (1962) considers this to be an amphiboreal species found in areas with an Atlantic (Spitzbergen, Franz Joseph Land, and northern Kara Sea) or Pacific influence (Bering, Okhotsk, and Japan seas) but apparently not north of Siberia. However, there does not appear to be any gap in its distribution across North America, even though it has a more southern distribution than A. nugax, is most abundant from the Gulf of St. Lawrence southward, and has been found as far south as Delaware and California (Hurley, 1963). It is found generally on sandy substrates from the intertidal region down to a depth of several hundred metres, including the very cold (about -1 to +1 C the year round) intermediate water layer of the Gulf St. Lawrence. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Holotype: Boeck's holotype presumably came from the Oslo Fjord, the first locality mentioned with his original description (1870). Sars (1891) writes: "the dissections made by Boeck of his specimen have been preserved in our collection, and from these the detail-figures here given are drawn." An inquiry at the Zoologisk Museum, Universitetet i Oslo revealed (letter of November 12, 1962 from Dr Nils Knaben) that "no material labelled lilljeborgii Boeck is to be
found at our museum in Oslo." These mounted appendages have been found nowhere else either. Paratype: one immature male, about 9 mm long, from Haugesund, west coast of Norway bout 59°25'N, 5°16'E), 60-70 fath, 110-128 m, from Boeck's original material; Haugesund is the only other locality mentioned in his paper of 1870. Zoologisk Museum, Universitetet i Bergen, Bergen, Norway, Cat. No. 3032 (pleon segments 3-5 are separated from the rest of the body).  [details]
